    Marina Van-Rooy ‘Sly One’ (greg wilson edit)

    128 bpm

    Previously exclusive mp3 only via Mixmag 2013.

    Back in 1989-91 I was working extensively out of Amazon Studios in Kirby, Liverpool, producing and mixing the Ruthless Rap Assassins, as well as Mind Body & Soul and Sensuround. Also using the studios during this period were Liverpool dance collective 8 Productions, consisting of Ian Martin Wright, Steve Cummerson, Pete Davies and, of course, Peter Coyle, formely of the Lotus Eaters, who’d scored a UK hit in 1983 with ‘The First Picture Of You’. We became friendly as a result, and would often play each other our works in progress – it was certainly something of a mutual appreciation society.

    ‘Sly One’ was their jewel in the crown – recorded with singer Marina Van-Rooy, it quickly became a cult classic and was snapped up by Haçienda DJ Mike Pickering, who was then head of A&R at Deconstruction, for a full release on the label, although the chart success we all presumed would follow failed to materialise.

    8 would also issue tracks by artists including The Donny And Marie Handbag Revolution and Connie Lush, but their greatest triumph was the club night G-Love, which was the early 90’s forerunner to Cream, promoted in conjunction with the local record store 3 Beat and legendary Liverpool DJ John Kelly.

    The edit is true to the original, with no additional elements. It’s something I’ve played out a number of times since I put it together last year, and was most recently featured in the mix from London’s Loft Studios: THE DATE @ LOFT STUDIOS LONDON 20.04.13 (greg wilson live mix) by gregwilson
